Hotspur Publishing Kindle eBook – 8/1/11
New writer Saul Garnell debuts with his first Novel Freedom Club, a speculative fiction novel with deep philosophical questions and topics for debate. A number of issues are raised within the book, and readers will find themselves edified by a unique mix of philosophical, moral, and dramatic questions which unfold over shifting timeframes.
Sumeet is the cream of Indian education, and a top notch investment banker. But he’s unhappy with the good life laid before him, and soon meets Shinzou Friemann, a mysterious consultant who offers solace from the fetters of unbridled Capitalism. But Shinzou is not all that he seems, and Sumeet is unwittingly drawn into the hunt for an unusual terrorist group. One where the lines between terrorist, freedom fighter, hero, and madman all break down…welcome to the Freedom Club.
Both men explore a future world overrun by consumerism, technology, and discontent. Where being human isn’t good enough, as God-like Sentient Beings threaten the very meaning of life. Written in a way that echoes John Brunner’s Stand on Zanzibar, Freedom Club is frighteningly prescient, and intensely powerful.
